Mid Coast Hospital's Sleep Disorders Center may be just what your doctor orders for diagnosis and treatment of your sleep problems.

 

Difficulty falling or staying asleep is not uncommon. About half of Americans report sleep difficulty at least occasionally. Such woes -- often called insomnia -- have far-reaching effects: a negative impact on concentration, productivity and mood. Apnea, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome and others sleep problems are all treatable.

At the Sleep Disorders Center you will find an experienced staff with over 35 combined years in this progressive field. The center has the most advanced diagnostic tools and a warm, comfortable environment for diagnosing your sleep problems.

The center conveniently located in Suite 3600 in Mid Coast Hospital's Medical Office Building and has hours that will fit most schedules.

At the Sleep Disorders Center, we are dedicated to your good night's sleep.
